What people are saying about Ajaccio

The visit was nice the walk was not too long but we were able to take some nice pictures the guides served us a friendly aperitif but what I preferred was when we left with this magnificent sunset and Corsican songs

It was an amazing experience. Right from pick up to dune bashing belly dancing and almost everything else in the activity. Good job by the entire team. Keep it up.

Magnificent expedition with a very kind and accommodating guide. He turned around on arrival at the port which allowed us to see the dolphins more closely!

Beautiful boat-trip! The moment of the sunset including the music was amazing. The boat is quite fast :-)

Superb walk, a good breath of fresh Mediterranean air and beautiful landscapes of the Island of Beauty.
